Good but I needed more

While I enjoyed the book, it took me quite a while to warm up to the hero considering the actions that he took in a previous book. I think that while this was a good installment in the series, I needed more. I wanted to really believe in the romance of the three characters, and to some extent I do, but I needed more written about them. It just felt like something was left behind.

I felt as though the romance was short changed.

The plot, however, is excellent! There are so ma

I loved this star wars style adventure, with ex slaves who are bionic hackers, stolen princesses, laser fighting mixed with some steam. It's rather like a video game in written form. The hs are lovers and rescued slaves - one is a lost princess and the H is second son at risk of being murdered by his older the brother, the heir. So lots of tropes, in a very fast paced and entertaining story. One of the hs is in phase so lots of mating, interspersed with humour. It was a lot of fun and I loved it ...more

After reading the previous book in the Cy'ren Rising series, Nightfall, I was left greatly anticipating this next installment and my anticipation was richly rewarded. From its exciting outer space battles that left you on the edge of your seat and your pulse pounding, to the political intrigue tearing families apart, this story moved at a quick yet immensely satisfying pace. Throw in lots of super steamy sexual interludes between an intriguing trio of emotionally battered individuals and you end ...more

If you're in the mood for a Ménage alien space story where a sexy warrior and her empathic mate (who's in heat) get rescued from their life as sex workers by the second son of a ruling family...then look no further. ...more

Years of slavery have depleted the female population of Cy'ren females to the point that having more than one female mate is now considered a symbol of wealth and status. Even though Jace Harrow, second son of House Morningstar, has enough wealth to support mates, he has yet to choose even one The dangerous political situation in his home city has resulted in multiple assassination attempts, and he's reluctant to allow his enemies to have a mate to target as well.

Bryn and Sabine have been mated

I have to admit there was something quite intriguing about Jace Harrow that caught my attention in Nightfall. I was so very pleased that he got his own very sexy pair of mates in Morningstar. The Cy’ren are still fighting for their rights as free citizens. Many would like to see the majority of this race to remain firmly in archaic way of slavery. Jace and many aboard the Talon II have dedicated their life to liberating those forced into slavery.
In searching for answers to exactly what the Eppe

This SF romance features a race called the Cy'ren and is second in a series.

The tale mainly focuses on two women who have been forcibly enslaved in a space station brothel. At the start a troop ship is attacking the station and the women manage to escape. Bryn is a former fighter and leads others to safety aboard the ship, while her mate Sabine was drugged and shows a bad reaction to what she was given. They just have to hope the ship's medics can help.

This is a wholly convincing on-board experi

This series was my first outing in this genre. I first found “Nightfall” and I was hooked. Although it is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone.

Moringstar focus on Jace Harrow- the swarthy Lieutenant Commander. He did come off as stoic and a bit arrogant at first- but that was just the surface; underneath he is a maelstrom of passions.

As well as being a very erotic tale, the back story is enough to satisfy any sci-fi geek girl.

There is plenty of excitement in this space
If you're not into threesomes, this book isn't for you. While the sex between the three main characters isn't too graphic, there is definitely a lot of sex. Oh, and there is intrigue and attempted murder, too. ...more
